Future of Organizations

We have deep specialization in the future of organizations, supported by our research into the future of work.

Some of the key facets of organizations that are changing include:

  • Internal structure. Traditional hierarchical structures are being supplanted by far more flexible ways of bringing together roles and responsibilities.
  • Work place and space. Work can be and is being done anywhere, transforming the role of the office, the nature of the workplace, and how and where employees work.
  • Talent. What attracts the most talented is changing, requiring organizations to create a new compact with their staff and focus not just on personal value creation but also on meaning and contribution.
  • External networks. Talent is increasingly accessed outside the organizations, shifting how business processes are run and the nature of organizational innovation.
  • Value creation. Value will be primarily created in organizations’ interfaces with their customers, suppliers, partners, and community, changing priorities and business models.

One of the most important issues is that organizations are becoming more unique. The paths to success are different for each company, and need to be explored individually to gain distinctive advantage.

Creating the Successful Organization of the Future

We work with a variety of sophisticated organizations to help them consider – and create – the successful organization of the future.

This ranges from executive briefings through structured workshops, and often involvement in broader strategic initiatives shaping the future of the organization.

Transformation of Business Framework

We collaborated with Advanced Human Technologies to create a framework examining the key drivers shaping business, the changing business landscape, and resulting new drivers of success for organizations.
